Christmas is coming - Next upgrade??
 
I wanted to get some opinions from you guys that may already have the two upgrades I'm debating over as a Christmas gift from my wife to me. I'm stuck between the Shark upgrade and the BavAuto Autosport Suspension Kit. :banghead: I would be chipping in the difference between the Shark and suspension kit so the cost to the wife would be the same - nice guy ain't I?!:yummy: I have the 2.3 so I see that the upgrade with the Shark is more than some other models and it would be the easier upgrade of the two. The suspension upgrade is 100x's harder than the software update but it makes the car look bad-ass!

I'd go for the suspension mods first!.. :)

I'd have to agree. Going fast is the easy part.

It's hugging the turns and quick stopping that set these cars apart from the rest.

I'm curious to know the pricing on each of these mods. Link?

I think it's unanimous! I'm going with the suspension. Thanks for the input. It was much appreciated and I have been leaning that way for a long time. Bring on Santa!!
